Building Bridges Radio: Domestic Workers Uniting - Your Home, My Work

Building Bridges: Your Community and Labor Report
National Edition
Produced by Ken Nash and Mimi Rosenberg
Special for Womenâs History Month
"Your Home, My Workâ - Domestic Workers Uniting


Building Bridges allows domestic workers to tell their stories - stories
of their pains, their pride and their efforts to organize for labor rights.
Since slavery, the domestic work force has been predominately women
of color. With the abolition of slavery African-American women were
still the predominate workers, as immigrant woman began to enter that
workforce. Today, women of color, from around the world work as
domestic workers. Everyday, 200, 000 domestic workers (nannies,
elderly companions, housekeepers) in New York make it possible for
their employers to go to work. Most are employed without a living wage,
healthcare, and basic labor protections. Domestic work is vital to the
economy and the community, but domestic workers remain invisible,
vulnerable, and undervalued. âYour Home, My Workâ recognizes and
values domestic laborers.
